Chaya Brasserie Beverly Hills

At CHAYA Brasserie, Our Corporate Executive Chef Shigefumi Tachibe, who is the culinary force behind every Chaya restaurant, creates a menu that reflects his pioneering approach to Euro Asian cuisine. Chef Tachibe infuses exotic ingredients and honored culinary traditions from his native Japanese roots into all of his menus. This culinary approach is reflected in our lunch and dinner menus, offered in the dining room, bar, and patio. In addition to our dinner menu, comprised of an array of salads, hot and cold appetizers, sushi, meat, fish and pasta, a seasonally spontaneous Chef’s Tasting Menu is available by request. Guests can enjoy Happy Hour specials in our bar and lounge featuring unique bar bites and signature cocktails. Our menus are refreshed all year long, using Farmer’s Market and locally-sourced ingredients. CHAYA Brasserie also offers half off bottles of wine on Tuesday nights.

"Too bad they are closing in a few days. The food was excellent. They said our table would be ready in a few minutes, we did have a reservation. I saw an empty table for about 25 minutes which turned out to be ours and did not understand why we had to wait. The service was mediocre, it took way too long for each course and even getting bread and water on the table was a long wait.
We had reservations for a concert that night and allotted two hours for dinner, figuring it would take about 90 minutes to eat. We ended up being at the restaurant for a little over two hours, much of the time spent waiting for food. Maybe business is down due to poor service. It's too bad because the ambiance and food was outstanding

"Chaya Brasserie in Beverly Hills is closing January 1st......so say goodbye!
Until then, they are serving the commemorative menu from 1984 - 30 years ago. Food from that menu is good, but I prefer their more recent menu.
Had many yummy meals there throughout the years - will miss them! Guess I'll have to make do with the Chaya in Santa Monica or the one downtown!"

"Was so saddened to hear that Chaya Brasserie, the Beverly Hills branch, is closing by the end of December 2014. They never fully recovered, it seems, from the recession. With consistently reliable food since the mid-1980s, they will certainly be missed. We were told, however, that the downtown, Venice, and San Francisco branches will still be open. Not the same, though."

"I've lived near Chaya for 16 years. It's a great place for an after work drink with a very mixed crowd of all ages -- You'll find local residents, lots of Cedars' MD's and senior administrative types, along with a few young and middle aged hipsters. It's comfortable and friendly. The dining room skews a bit older. Portions are always generous and the sushi is very fresh. Sadly, over the years the food has gone from truly excellent, very creative Asian-fusion to lackluster. The dishes are the bland-side and without the innovation and flair. I long for the more complex, creative flavorful dishes of days gone by!"
